The Candyman | Human Statue

The best human statue in the world, officially! John Eicke, The Candyman is two-time world champion from the World Living Statues Championship!

Since Candyman’s first world title he has traveled the world bringing his unique characters to different countries and cultures. He’s a universal delight that transcends language barriers and cultural differences.

The history of performance as a human statue dates back to the renaissance, when groups of entertainers would be on display on a mount or elaborate stand designed to make them appear as if they were a monument. They performed at pageants, festivals, and for nobles. The historic profession has not changed much!

The Candyman’s attention to detail makes him and incredible character and a great addition to any event. He’s able to operate as a solo performer, stand-alone show or walkabout act!
